Notes 
 Marcus Semien is one of the most polarizing figures in fantasy this year. He had an MVP-type season last season - not saying that lightly at all - and there's not much in the peripherals that scream regression is coming, but he is a 29-year-old who had a breakout season by all accounts. Prior to 2019, he was the definition of a replacement-level fantasy option. There should always be trepidation with those types of breakouts.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
There's an obvious risk with Carlos Correa, but the risk attached to him isn't performance-based, rather, it's injury based. Correa just can't stay on the field. When he does play - including last season - we've seen what he's can do, and those peak A-Rod comparisons are still there. What's going against Correa is not only his health, but the position he plays is insanely deep, so it's easier to fade him for guys like Corey Seager, Jorge Polanco, Marcus Semien, and Tim Anderson. Do you know what those guys don't have? They don't have No. 1 at the position upside, nor do they possess top-25 overall upside. Correa does, and he's still only 25 and entering his peak years. This is a great spot to grab him, and you can take one of those depth shortstops later on in the draft to pair with him in case he gets hurt again.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Semien is currently being drafted outside the top 12 fantasy shortstops around the 7th round but did you know that he finished among the top five last year and ahead of Lindor, Turner and Torres. Semien knocked 33 bombs with double-digit steals, a good .285 batting average and 123 runs.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
So far, we've only seen Correa play more than 110 games once in his five seasons. Whenever he is on the field, Correa has been a tremendous hitter so the upside is that of a top five fantasy shortstop but his floor is quite low because of the repeat injury risk.
